About the Boy

The other day, I walked into a local sporting-good store, intent on scouting out the Nike running gear. But when I chanced upon the clerk in the shoe department, said running-gear-scouting was forgotten. We talked for over an hour—first about running (which, it turns out, we both love), and then about basically every other topic under the […]

new "Chocolate Cookie Dough" product review

The other day, when I spotted the new Larabar flavors at the store—chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate chip brownie, carrot cake, and peanut butter chocolate chip—my hand involuntarily reached out to snatch them. (Well, I only got these two, so I did manage to not buy all the newest Larabar flavors.) I love to make […]

Perfect for the family with little children that still wishes to dine elegantly. See, I could be a dish model. Mr Heckles: I could play the Oboe. (Non-Friends-watchers, feel […]

Food is NOT the most important thing in the world

What are some things that are more important to you than food?  To me, family is definitely more important. Sarah (a reader) asked: In the eight (I think you said eight) years you’ve been vegan, have you ever KNOWINGLY eaten a meat or dairy product, either by accident or choice? I know you said you […]
